The British Queen is refusing to have knee surgery at 92-years-old.

Queen Elizabeth does not want to miss any royal engagements that surgery would result in.

The world's longest serving monarch is known to love her work and travelling around the world despite her age.

"But she is reluctant to have an op due to the time it would take to recover. She is incredibly brave.

The Queen now needs help after she sits down for long periods of time but otherwise her health is robust.

"People from her and Philip's generation battle through problems and carry on. And Her Majesty doesn't like to cause any fuss," added the source.

Last month, it was revealed that the Monarch had successful surgery to remove a cataract in May.
